As year two of my practitioner course progresses, I can’t help but marvel at the depth of the whole subject of Ayurveda. When I first became interested, I read lots of magazine articles and books, did questionnaires to find out my constitution, started practicing a daily routine etc. and thought I’d acquired a good level of knowledge. However, I’ve since found out that I’d only scratched the surface!
Ayurveda just keeps surprising me with its profound wisdom – some of which, Western medicine is just catching up with, such as the importance of gut-health. I feel very fortunate to be learning with Dr Deepika and her team at the Ayurveda Institute UK and I’m now well on the way to becoming an Ayurvedic Practitioner.
What this means is that I’ll be able to help treat specific illnesses as well as help prevent them occurring in the first place.
So far, we’ve looked at eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, arthritis, asthma, fibromyalgia and diabetes and there are more to learn! We’ve looked into the allopathic (western) approach to these illnesses and how to treat them from an Ayurvedic perspective – I find it endlessly interesting and I can’t wait to help share my passion for Ayurveda and help others on their journey to better health.
Together with Ayurveda, we can do it!
